On Tuesday the Los Angeles Kings sent center Colin Fraser to the Manchester Monarchs. Fraser did not get into any playoff games after being recalled prior to Game 3.
Fraser was assigned to the Monarchs during the Olympic break, and Game 3 was the first time he was recalled since.
The Kings appear to be on the verge of recalling defenseman Jeff Schultz from the Monarchs, do to the uncertainty of Willie Mitchell.
Fraser, 6’ 1”, 190-pound left wing, had three goals, six points and a plus-three rating in nine games with the Monarchs. He is spoken highly of his shot blocking skills and leadership role, skating with young players as well.
Fraser, 29, has two Stanley Cups under his belt; One with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010, and once with the Kings in 2012.
Having him return for the playoffs would’ve been a great asset to the Kings, but he is being a leader the Monarchs can look up to now.
Fraser has played 358 career NHL games, 58 points (20G-38A), a minus-6 rating, and 290 penalty minutes.
Fraser has played 39 career playoff games, recording four points (1G-3A), a minus-3 rating, and 16 penalty minutes.Tags: Hockey, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Kings, NHL
